as an aid project aims to improve the living conditions in Chocó, Colombia. The path to this goal leads through the education of young women and girls.
CASA HOGAR can already look back on a number of successfully completed projects.
We present three of them to you here, many more you will find at our Projects page.
The construction of the hostel
„Casa Hogar Niña María”
… in Istmina Tadó, 20 girls (and 40 in the long term) will be given a safe and secure home so that they can live in a safe environment while graduating from Colegio Diocesano.
The expansion of the
„Colegio Diocesano San José”
… increases the capacity of this ecclesiastically and regionally renowned school in Istmina from 200 to 400 pupils and thus has the necessary space to train pupils up to a school-leaving certificate with university entrance qualification.
The extension of the break area in the
„Colegio Diocesano San José”
… enables the pupils to play outside in a protected area during breaks and free hours, without danger from the passing street and without disturbing other classes during learning.

“From my experiences in Colombia I know that CASA HOGAR is active where help is needed most. It supports girls and women who in the long run will secure the means of existence for all poorer social classes with their wisdom, toughness, hard work and creativity.”

“In regions like the Chocó women are extremely disadvantaged because of their gender. CASA HOGAR tries to turn this disadvantage into an advantage for the entire society. The valuable cause together with CASA HOGAR’s great professionalism make this a charity project which is worth every donated penny.”
Dr. Claudia Lücking-Michel | MdB, Bonn
“Denying people their right to education deprives them of a fundamental human right. Especially girls and young women are often denied access to education – and therefore the chance to a self-determined, successful life. Still two thirds of the world’s illiterate people are women. A fact that should put all of us to shame. This is why I support CASA HOGAR.”
